region would be suspended and vowed to keep iraq from breaking apart. they took advantage of the situation and violated the constitution i don't want to say that we will use force we'll use our heads and respect the constitution if they respond to this then it's fine and therefore today i demand that they return all the areas they recaptured from the islamic state it's what parliament decided. iraq's neighbors have rejected the referendum on tuesday turkey held joint military exercises along its border with a kurdish region and threaten to block kurdistan's oil exports. several airlines have also stopped flights to north and iraq at baghdad's request. the non-binding vote is unlikely to lead to independence anytime soon but that has not dampened the mood across the cut issue region. and some on the story i'm

3:05 pm
to independence. they are they have a very big hope about it that this it's time for them to have an independent kurdish state but also at the same time they ask a lot of different questions concerning the economical situation here if we take a very practical example like a lot of government and for years didn't get their money since months even though the government here is dependent on the imports from baghdad is dependent on the imports from iran and the imports from turkey what will happen if there's going to be a blockade these are the question is who are concerning now people because i'm today and so i am mania but if you look to arab you see the other city to other major city i talk to some citizens there on the phone and they already talk me there are they are afraid there's not going to be enough food and they're actually going to them are buying down buying the necessity things they need in their daily lives because of what's going to happen on the other and when you talk to the political
3:06 pm
side to the political experts here they say now have a legitimate ok from their people to start negotiating a lot having an independent kurdish state and what are the flies the bhandup has to kind of. cancel a lot of international flights to the region reacted to that. i mean the blockade will be action and counter concerning in not in solomon yet that's the information we have to now you already have some foreigners in our reveal who are leaving the country who are leaving the city and here in seoul and the new york people who say we should take now the last plane not the last international plane to leave the country because after that there's a lot of question what will happen if you can have a blockade blockade will be any people who are here now be able to leave that's a lot of question and you could feel i can require even if you talk to people face

3:08 pm
current government for off to reason may has to sell to its population and the bracks negotiations as some form of success something that will give them a better deal at the end of these negotiations and that is why david davies again was rather more upbeat about how things went and let's listen what michel barnier the chief negotiator for the e.u. had to say is going to run we have to construct a week yes but we are not yet there in terms of achieving sufficient progress so as you can hear he's a little more. has it and to call this really brock ress and i would say that if you if you put all in a nutshell the e.u. and the u.k. still remain divided on key issues in these talks now if this is a fourth round of talks british prime minister is that they went on a major charm offensive what did back to did that have on these talks it had to
3:09 pm
some extent the impact that it installed a little more dynamics as michelle money has put it in his press conference at the same time he said it it remains clear that one of the key stumbling blocks in the negotiations is that david davis his counterpart would like to mix together the talks about the current divorce so the commitments the u.k. has to honor and a future relationship and that is where mr brown years set for talking about a future relationship which only can be done if there is sufficient progress is still weeks even months away. yet not just in brussels thank you. that we now bring you some other stories making news around the world catalonian and spanish officials have held talks to discuss the policing of this sunday's unauthorized independence referendum the catalan recent government is determined to go ahead with the ballot while spanish state authorities are out to stop it pro
